## USAA: Catastrophe Risking Financing Case Solution

The value of the ROL and price at layer 5 is calculated by using the data of probability of the loss and the value of loss provided by the actuaries. For the calculation of the ROL and price at layer 5, the value of the probability of loss is required which is calculated by looking at the table and graph, which are provided by actuaries in Exhibit 4.

1. What percentage of losses in layer 5 did USAA coinsure? WhatÂ percentage is re-insured through a third party?

The value of losses in reinsurance agreement is expected to be not insured completely as some percentage of losses is coinsured. At layer 5, the value of the reinsurance contract is \$500m. The value of the cover will be 80% with \$500m, which will be insured by the third party, and the value of the coinsurance will be 20%.
